History UK is sponsoring a panel at the inaugural Heritage Dot conference, to be held at Lincoln on 3-4 June 2019. The conference is hosted by the University of Lincoln, Imperial War Museums and the Heritage Lottery Fund. There is further information at the conference website, but here’s a brief extract:
Heritage Dot explores the exciting collision between the worlds of digital tools and technology and cultural heritage. This fusion is creating new relationships between past and future, tradition and innovation. It is enabling new audiences to reinterpret the past and technologies of the future to reimagine professional practice. At the same time, its continually evolving nature can be a confusing space, placing demands on people and organisations within a landscape of diminishing access to resources.
History UK will sponsor one panel (this includes paying fees, transport and accommodation for those taking part). So, if you’re a historian from a subscribing department who works on digital heritage and are interested in presenting at the conference (or have already decided to do so!), please do get in touch with us by emailing either or both of the co-conveners.
